Forum: GratefulDead Subject: if the glass is only half full...

maybe the glass is too big! do you listen to a show for the show or are you too busy analyzing what you think this musician is thinking and if you think they have a different lifestyle than you would like them to have, or don't approve of this or that because it is something you yourself may or may not have a struggle with??????try listening to a song as it is, not compare it to another of past or present...do you ever have to do something at work when you simply just don't feel like it?????? any way got to listen to this one now... When the last rose of summer pricks my fingers
And the hot sun chills me to the bone
When I can't hear the song for the singer
And I can't tell my pillow from a stone

I will walk alone by the black muddy river
And sing me a song of my own
I will walk alone by the black muddy river
Sing me a song of my own

When the last bolt of sunshine hits the mountain
And the stars seem to splatter in the sky
When the moon splits the south west horizon
And scream of an eagle on the fly

I will walk alone by the black muddy river
And listen to the ripples as they moan
I will walk alone by the black muddy river
Sing me a song of my own

Black muddy river
Roll on forever
I don't care how deep and wide
If you got another side
Roll muddy river
Roll muddy river
Black muddy river, roll

When it seems like the night will last forever
And there's nothing left to do but count the years
When the strings of my heart start to sever
And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears

I will walk alone by the black muddy river
And dream me a dream of my own
I will walk alone by the black muddy river
Sing me a song of my own
And sing me a song of my own

I so love that song. I know, I'm not supposed to love that song 'cus it's later era and Jerry is supposed to always suck, but I still love it.
